Being a working mother/wife is hard. One must learn to handle pressure on demanding bosses [which is my daughter and myself. lol]. I never thought that a home-based business is harder than working outside because your number 1 enemy will be yourself [talk about laziness days…]. There were no holidays, closing time, or company outings, just plain husband and wife investing for the future. Hence, I will still hold on to “Pay now, play later” rather than enjoying every money spent while our bank accounts are gradually losing. Well, we still go out on a date but not in an extravagant ways. A simple tea house is our new place to unwind. Speaking of which, my husband went for a 3-day out-of town for work and my daughter and I were left at home. Before he leaves, he asked me to go to our favorite tea house “Tea Fairy Cafe” 7pm sharp later but he didn’t say why.
7pm strikes on the clock and we (baby and I) went out to the tea house. Approaching the cashier, the manager told me “Maui?” and I said that Maui is my husband. The man said that I have free treats…wow!
At first, I thought it was just a drink and a cookie but I was surprised because he served me these!
A Dark Choco Milktea
Red velvet cupcake
fkllgndkfj cookie (Sorry, it’s really hard to memorize that one. A choco with pecan nuts cookie, my very favorite!)
2 wrapped gifts (for Hiro and Me)
and a love letter (or sort-of-contract from my husband? lol)
Weeee!!! This is the first time that I encountered such a sweet surprise. 🙂
Speaking of Surprise, yeah, it was indeed a 3-day surprise for me. I felt like I was Charlize Theron in Sweet November movie [the part when Keanu Reeves gave 12 different gifts to her].
Day 1: (before Maui left): Gave me my favorite chocolate candies and drink
Day 2: Received a recycled envelop (old fedex envelop.lol) which has makeup tools, a top shirt, writing materials and a love letter. Plus, this Tea Fairy treat!
Day 3: A new mouse for my laptop (which I was wishing for the long time)
Eating seriously…lol. I was controlling my emotions during this moment because I don’t want to be a crybaby in front of other people (especially when my husband is not around). Seriously, I got so stiff when I received this but deep inside, I was jumping in happiness. Maybe this is the feeling when your loveone is not around.
Thank you TEAFAIRY CAFE Mandaluyong for serving such a lovely treat and for being an accomplice to my husband’s surprise! To my MR. October/November- and forever [Maui] who continuously give happiness to my boring life. And of course, thank you Lord for these abundant blessings!
Hiro and I really enjoyed this mommy-daughter night out! 🙂
